Make an entrance for your next home renovation with these stunning foyer designs!
First impressions do matter, and this applies equivocally to home interior design as well. Due to the fact that condo interiors and HDB flats in Singapore are getting smaller, foyer and entryway designs are considered as irrelevant and often neglected during home renovation, but this unassuming space plays a much more significant role than we think.
